I E 405 Deterministic Models in Operations Research (3)

This course will be an introduction to deterministic modeling. In particular, the student will learn to formulate linear programs, network models, and integer programs. The student will also learn solution strategies such as the simplex method and branch and bound. Duality and sensitivity analysis will be covered along with their economic interpretation. Optimization software will be used for solving the formulations. Practical examples along with a detailed case study will be presented to help the student to synthesize the topic. This will be a required course for all undergraduate students pursuing a baccalaureate degree in Industrial Engineering.
